. the new jersey governor christie greeted president on the tarmac ahead of a helicopter tour of the damage. he has been one of the president's toughest critics but he says he doesn't care about politics right now and they are working to egg to heard the national guard and state recover. officials tackle the recovery effort, there is much despair, a last it, millions of still without power, many homes are gone and streets up and down the shore and new york are flooded or littered with downed trees. rick is on the jersey shore and jonathan hunt is across the river in new jersey which just got smacked. first, though, to ed henry. what is the president saying today? >>reporter: you showed the striking picture of the president with governor christie a top republicans very close to mitt romney, a very prominent -- they have to put politics aside. the president wrapped up an aerial tour with governor christie of the other devastation, horrific devastation. we had pictures earlier, as well, of governor christie comforting a woman who was openly weeping after seeing her home was destroyed. people h
by sandy. he was accompanied by new jersey governor chris christie. here they are in a photo just released by the white house within the past hour on marine one. the president said he will help. >> we are here for you and we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you've rebuilt. >> the iconic boardwalk and seaside heights, new jersey, is just one of the places the president saw today. it's a landmark made famous by bruce springsteen, mtv and "the sopranos." this is before and after, to give you a sense of what's happened. it's not even all there. you can see the rides including the roller coaster have been washed away sitting in the ocean. michael holmes is just across the bay in toms river, new jersey. you were in seaside heights, you toured it, what did you see? >> reporter: we went right up and down a number of towns there, ocean beach, normandy, and we spent a couple of hours there with the local police chief and i can tell you, it was absolutely extraordinary, the amount of damage that was done by hurricane sandy, erin. you know,
're dealing with a chris christie, a michael bloomberg, and an andy cuomo. these are three guys who are not shy. and if they think the federal government was not helping them, was not being aggressive, they thought the president wasn't on top of this or wasn't doing everything that they thought the federal government could do, don't you think they'd run, not walk to a tv camera and let people know? so you're in a unique situation here with a hard-hit area, so three very politically savvy, media savvy governors in the most important media market in the world. you don't want to mess this up. so i think this is a case where it's good politics not to play politics and just throw yourself into disaster relief because you're dealing with a high population area that, frankly, you mess this up, the whole world is going to know about it. >> yeah, howard, what's impressive to me is he's going to new jersey today. he went to jersey. we saw the pictures. not to one of those states that we got a little tired covering basically, the so-called swing states. he went to the states in need today. >>

, and it's still going on. having chris christie as a de facto unintentional surrogate doesn't seem to hurt obama one bit. it probably seems to help him. >> what is so interesting, you said chris christie, de facto endorser of obama. you've got this new article exclusive from politico saying there were people on governor romney's team who believed that chris kri city was the vp choice almost until the very ending, and surprise it's ryan. isn't the timing interesting? >> it's a little too interesting. look, there are two ways to react. governor christie says i'm doing my job. the president is doing his job. we're working together and i'm being honest. you have to respect that. look at two different examples. haley barbour who went through katrina in mississippi says that's absolutely what governor christy ought to say, he is doing what he has to do and get off his back. and you have the underground voices of the romney campaign who were taking a different tack and kind of sniping at christie at different angles, in a fit of pique basically. >> you can't really blame them. this is game theory
significant damages. martha: we heard from governor christie, he is very concerned about the whole state. i know he is trying to get up into a helicopter to look at some of the damage. the wind are still too strong out there for that. rick what can you tell us about that whole area? martha: that was live shot from seaside heights, new jersey. go ahead, rick. >> the damages are widespread. mike come around this way. just to give people an idea how deep this stand is on this particular road. this along, like, you know, getting front-end loader in here to scoop the sand off the streets. this is just one block of one community. there are communities up and down the new jersey coastline just like this. they saw several feet of water. all the dunes were breeched. they have been washed away. that sand is up and down the streets here. look how bad this oceanfront hotel was torn up. the fencing is knocked down. we saw pieces of houses float by us last night. you see where some of the debris is coming from. there are fences gone. there are pools carried away and businesses are just really, really hit
. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >>> welcome back. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >> the election is less than a week away. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our efforts this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all the trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. the storm put romney in a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts -- >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate w
at least most of the eastern united states and today new jersey governor chris christie called it devastating beyond anything he ever thought he'd say. we can all agree on this. there's a whole lot of work to do in the days ahead. >> reporter: point pleasant beach one of many seaside communities up and down the new jersey shore that saw extensive damages from hurricane sandy as it blasted ashore. hurricane avenue is now covered in sand and debris. this is just one of many communities now dealing with the aftermath of this powerful storm. >> the level of devastation at the jersey shore is unthinkable. >> reporter: new jersey governor chris christie is stunned by the extent of devastation in his state. the familiar atlantic city boardwalk is in shambles, entire neighborhoods washed over as search and rescue crews scoop up stranded residents by the boat load and crews working around the clock to clear out debris fields that are 7 feet high in some places. >> i anticipated last night given the nature of the winds and the rain we'd be pretty bad. i didn't expect it to be that bad.
, victor and christi. >> thank you. >>> speaking about polling, that could even be impacted by the storm. gallup editor in chief ed newport says if people cannot be contacted because of large power outages and disruptions, they "might have to stop polling for the days when the storm hits." >>> president obama is going to lose florida hands down. that's the claim our next guest is making. you're about to hear why. americans are always ready to work hard for a better future. since ameriprise financial was founded back in 1894, they've been committed to putting clients first. helping generations through tough times. good times. never taking a bailout. there when you need them. helping millions of americans over the centuries. the strength of a global financial leader. the heart of a one-to-one relationship. together for your future. ♪ nyquil tylenol: we are?ylenol. you know we're kinda like twins. together for your future. nyquil (stuffy): yeah, we both relieve coughs, sneezing, aches, fevers. tylenol: and i relieve nasal congestion. nyquil (stuffy): overachiever. anncr vo: tylenol cold m
